I don’t know what these are, but they smell soo good!
Mint Truffle Kisses
Hershey needs to stop coming out with all these delicious flavors… I’m running out of ideas of how to photograph them.
Who is going shopping today (went shopping)? It’s 5:30 am and I’m already back from Wal-Mart….. wow… it was a MADHOUSE!!!!! I left just before 5 am because I thought they opened at 5, but they must have opened earlier than that because the store was PACKED!!! I fought my way to the back of the store and got the girls each a Nintendo DS game (last copy of both titles!) and then picked up a pair of jeans for myself. Surprisingly, the lines at the registers weren’t that bad (probably because everyone was waiting in line to get a TV, etc. LOL). There was only one person in front of me at the check-out, so I was in and out of the store in less than 30 minutes.
If anyone is shopping at Wal-Mart, I strongly suggest that you take a sales ad with you if you have one!! NONE of the items I bought came up with the sales price, and the sale prices weren’t marked on the shelves/racks either. Thankfully the person behind me brought his ad and the cashier was able to override the prices. Saved almost $40!!
I’m about to wake Melissa and we’re going to brave the crowds together… just for fun, and without a shopping list. Black Friday really isn’t so bad when you don’t have to stand in line to get a certain item 😉
.. to all of you… from all of us 🙂
This is a picture of the place mat, Sara made at school. She has been using it every day since she got to bring it home. I love how tiny her little hand turkey is.
Of course the past week or two have been all about Thanksgiving at kindergarten, and they’ve done several projects. One was a picture they had to draw. First they cut out words that spelled “I like to eat”, and then write the words and draw a picture. Sara likes to eat PUKN PI.
Another project was a story that they made into a little book. They got to draw a picture for each page, and fill in the blanks of the story. It was called Pilgrims, and went like this: Long ago pilgrims came to America. They crossed the ocean in a ship called Maflawr. The men built hawses for their families. Friendly indins showed pilgrims how to plant corn. Pilgrims and Indians had the first Thanksgiving.
Unfortunately she didn’t get to finish the last sentence, I would have loved to see how she would have spelled Thanksgiving.
I could never get the kids to sit on this bench without making faces, trying to run away, or otherwise goof off. This model had no problems posing for me.

Get Off The Road…
… the dinosaurs are coming!!!
I walked into Sara’s room the other day and saw that she had all her dinosaurs lined up on her race track.
Seize The Day
Did anyone else go to IKEA’s “Seize The Day” sale? On Tuesday they had these dishes on sale for just $9.99 (for 18 pieces!). You had to have a coupon – which they were handing out right just inside the entrance doors – in order to get a set, and it was only one set per customer. But thanks to Amber’s help, I got to snag two sets.
And, since the name of these dishes is 365+1 it’s only fitting that they end up on my blog 😉
One last soccer pic until spring… I forgot I had this one. Are 5-year-olds supposed to be playing like that??
The kids helped Greg with the yard work yesterday and were able to rake up a small pile of leaves. They had to let me take some pictures if they wanted to play in it (mean mommy!)
I’m So Honored…
